The HLFF’s objective is to provide mathematicians and computer scientists with a similar networking meeting as the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings (LNLM) have successfully been doing for the disciplines of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine and economics for many decades. Klaus Tschira Stiftung In 1995, Klaus Tschira (1940–2015), physicist and co-founder of the software company SAP, established the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS) in Germany as a non-profit foundation. The Foundation promotes the advancement of natural sciences, mathematics and computer science and strives to raise appreciation for these fields. The KTS is one of Europe´s largest privately funded non-profit foundations. The Foundation is jointly managed by Beate Spiegel, Harald Tschira and Udo Tschira. 22
